  • Liz Warren Attempts to Win Back the ‘Deplorables’

    Senator Elizabeth Warren proposes a ban on stock ownership by members of Congress. “They can put their savings in conflict-free investments like mutual funds,” she explained last week, “or they can pick a different line of work.” Given that a greater number of Americans own stocks than homes, the proposal seems like a difficult one to implement. The fact that lawmakers generally hail from the stock-owning class, a group about as large as the middle class, complicates the matter further. “I don’t think the solution is an outright ban,” Secret Empires author Peter Schweizer, journalism’s foremost scourge of political corruption,...

    WASHINGTON - There's an old, common sense saying about never putting your eggs in one basket. Yet that's what Democrats have done by overwhelmingly bowing to Hillary Clinton's vaunted ambition to be the next president of the United States. But the polls of the last few weeks suggest that Clinton's coronation campaign, with all of the trappings of pomp and power that preceded it, is coming apart at the seams. The former secretary of State's precipitous decline was first noticed in March in a national CNN poll that found her unfavorable numbers were rising, and perceptions of her as honest...

    The sentence jumps out of Hillary Clinton’s op-ed piece on how she’s been listening to “everyday Iowans.” “We can fix our dysfunctional political system and get unaccountable money out of it once and for all, even if that takes a constitutional amendment,” she writes in the Des Moines Register. Um, is this the right time for Hillary to be talking about “unaccountable money”? The optics of her fledgling campaign are mighty strange, almost like it exists in one universe and the media coverage occupies a parallel universe.

    Facing increased scrutiny following the launch of Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, the Clinton Foundation has acknowledged mistakes on its tax returns in recent years. In a blog post on Sunday, Clinton Foundation acting CEO Maura Pally said that the charity will likely refile forms for some years after completing an external review. "Yes, we made mistakes, as many organizations of our size do, but we are acting quickly to remedy them, and have taken steps to ensure they don't happen in the future," Pally wrote. She added, "We are committed to operating the Foundation responsibly and effectively to continue the...

    CNN legal analyst Sunny Hostin had choice words for President Obama last night when she appeared on “The Lead” with Jake Tapper. ...“Both Mayor Rawlings-Blake and President Obama, today, using the word “thug,”” Tapper said after showing a clip of Mayor Rawlings-Blake speaking. “Sunny, you take issue that?” “I do,” Hostin responded. “It’s not a word, certainly, that I’m comfortable with. It’s not a word that I use. I think that we can all agree that that word, that term has been racialized, and I think what I saw during the riots was, I saw a lot of crimes being...

    Oh my, corruption thy name is “the Clintons.” "Former president Bill Clinton reaped more than $2.5 million in speaking fees from 13 companies that lobbied the State Department while his wife was secretary of state. Ten of those companies paid him within the same 3-month reporting period covered by the government documents that disclosed the lobbying activity." Now, don’t get me wrong. This kind of behavior is completely acceptable in the average banana republic. If you’d do this in, say, Haiti, nobody would say anything. In the States, however, there are some basic rules of conduct for government officials and...

    Airline giant Boeing said this week that it will not release correspondence pertaining to the State Department’s work in securing a Russian contract for the company, a donor to the foundation of then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Boeing recently rejected a shareholder resolution proposed by David Almasi, a Boeing shareholder and the executive director of the conservative National Center for Public Policy Research, asking the company to disclose more information about its charitable giving. At the company’s Monday shareholder meeting, Almasi asked chief executive James McNerney “to set the record straight that every communication between Boeing and the State Department was...

    A fiery Joe Scarborough on Tuesday denounced the media's double standard when it comes to investigating the scandal engulfing the Clinton Foundation's financial dealings. An angry Scarborough erupted "The Clintons have made $150 million over the past decade because of contacts they made during public service!" He described the typical journalist reaction as "Let's bow down before Bill and Hillary, because if we ask the same questions of them that we ask of every other politician, then oh, my God! We have crossed a line!" Scarborough's outburst was a result of Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski's skeptical questioning of Clinton...

    International Business Times ^ | 04/28/2015 | By Andrew Perez, David Sirota , Matthew Cunningham-Cook
    Former President Bill Clinton accepted more than $2.5 million in speaking fees from 13 major corporations and trade associations that lobbied the U.S. State Department while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state, an International Business Times investigation has found. The fees were paid directly to the former president, and not directed to his philanthropic foundation. Many of the companies that paid Bill Clinton for these speeches -- a roster of global giants that includes Microsoft, Oracle and Dell -- engaged him within the same three-month period in which they were also lobbying the State Department in pursuit of their policy...

    In January, Robert F. McDonnell, 71st governor of Virginia, was sentenced to two years in prison followed by two years of supervised release after his conviction on 11 counts of public corruption. He, and especially his wife, behaved badly. But it's worth taking a closer look at what was considered criminal in McDonnell's case, because, at least so far, some in the press are suggesting that Hillary Clinton's conduct must meet a much higher threshold to be considered problematic. When ABC's George Stephanopoulos interviewed Peter Schweizer, author of "Clinton Cash" on Sunday, Stephanopoulos played the informal role of Clinton defense...

    Monday on Fox Business Network’s “The Willis Report,” host Gerri Willis broke down the charitable spending of the Clinton Foundation. Willis said, “What if you were to analyze the Clinton Foundation like any charitable organization? That is a question that we’re asking tonight. Does the Clinton Foundation wisely spend charitable dollars? Well the experts weighed in. The answer is a resounding no. One expert even called it a slush fund for the Clintons. These are not politicos. These are charity experts.” “Charity Navigator, who we have on the show all the time, placed the Clinton Foundation on a watch list,”...

    Several years ago I visited a synagogue in Istanbul, one of the few remaining in all of Turkey. It had been firebombed a few weeks earlier – in response to some recent incident between Israelis and Palestinians. But because of security and a thick outer wall, it was relatively unharmed. Inside, ten elderly, eccentric Jewish Turks were gathered, the bare number needed for a minyan. We spoke for a short while about what it was to live as a religious minority in a big Muslim country. But I will never forget the atmosphere in that tiny congregation – wary, but...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts) reportedly plans to use her influence in the Senate to make Hillary Clinton become her type of presidential candidate. In a New Yorker profile published on Monday, an unnamed Warren adviser told Ryan Lizza that the senator "can get Hillary to do whatever the hell she wants." Accordingly, the source said, there's no reason for Warren to challenge Clinton's bid for the White House. "I think she's in a beautiful position right now because she can get Hillary to do whatever the hell she wants," the adviser said. "Now the question is, will Hillary stick to...

    Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign will be in serious jeopardy if she's challenged by a fellow Democrat, says Bill Kristol, founder and editor of The Weekly Standard and an ABC News contributor. "She's in real trouble the moment a Democratic candidate or potential candidate, elected official, attacks her," Kristol said Monday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV. ---snip--- Kristol, who attended the Republican Jewish Coalition in Las Vegas over the weekend, said he was very impressed with Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, the first Republican to declare his candidacy for president. "The big story of the weekend was Cruz....
  • Elizabeth Warren on Hillary Clinton's embrace of her populist message: 'Eh'

    (UK) Guardian ^ | April 27, 2015 | Ben Jacobs
    Is Hillary Clinton co-opting Elizabeth Warren’s progressive message? Warren has a one-word answer: “Eh.” The Massachusetts senator and liberal hero added to her inscrutable initial response in an interview with the New Yorker: “She’s laying out her vision for the country and she deserves an opportunity to do that.” But the opaqueness of her answer will raise eyebrows about Warren’s role as a Democratic party powerbroker as she continues to put pressure on Clinton from the left. As Clinton turns towards populism to shore up the Democratic base in her run for the White House, her rhetoric increasingly sounds like...

    Does Hillary Clinton have a trustworthiness problem? We ask the question in that manner because we’re talking here about voter perception of Mrs. Clinton more than our judgment of her character per se. Reports of the appearance of conflicts of interest between her role as secretary of State and foreign donations to her family foundation have generated lots of headlines in recent days. It’s possible that those reports are already taking a toll on her image. Clintonworld is surely worried that might happen. On Sunday, the Clinton Foundation hit back with a lengthy rebuttal of some of the allegations of...

    The Week ^ | April 27, 2015 | Michael Brendan Dougherty
    The Clintons are going to wear us all out. Even the patience of Democrats is already beginning to wear thin. As Bill Clinton denies that a certain meeting ever happened — a meeting that resulted in income to the family's foundation that wasn't claimed on their taxes, a dodge that certainly wasn't recorded in emails Hillary Clinton deliberately destroyed — you get the sense that support for the Clintons is beginning to crack. The best Democrats can do is throw up their hands. What difference does it make if all of the above are violations of the ethics and transparency...

    How do you know that a Democrat has found him or herself embroiled in a particularly devastating scandal? When the press begins to ask when the Republicans will begin “overplaying” their hands. This weekend, you could feel the ground beginning to fall out from beneath Hillary Clinton’s supporters as members of the reporting and commentary classes began to express their doubts about the former secretary of state’s ethics. Among some prominent members of the media who are generally not predisposed to dismiss the Democratic candidate in a presidential race, the Clinton Foundation’s shady fundraising practices and the former secretary’s...
